Kim Dellavedova as a songwriter and performer is placed as an exceptional artist. With 60's tone-master guitarist, Scott Wilson, they have been captivating audiences live, delivering her take on classic country/soul, swampy blues, to songs with refreshingly cheeky, upbeat pop/rock grooves. Not afraid to employ a killer riff, Kim has distilled her songwriting with compelling craft enticing her audiences to walk a way after a show, singing one of her choruses.
In 2005, Kim released, 'for want of a better word', a sublime collection of 11 tracks that feature her tasteful guitar playing and established her strength as a songwriter. In the opening track 'Spare me the Details' she sets the mood with the lyrics, 'I see the colour of her wanting, in the top she chose to wear'. In 'I asked you', a spacious pop/rock song, Kim's electric guitar playing intertwines with her voice to deliver a punchy chorus, 'Why do you make it so easy, why don't you pull on the reins, why don't you keep me in line'
Following the release, Kim headed to the US and Canada where she performed songs off 'for want of a better word' and settled in the songwriting hub of Toronto to co-write with local artists, and to write new material for her next record.
The songs written over two summers is Toronto make up the outstanding collection of songs featured in Kim's new release, 'City Keepers'
